Been watching this project for quite a while, but just registered to give feedback here. I am excited to see this release, I will order at least 2 model B's as soon as they are available, and probably 2 others, but haven't fully decided on A or B model for those.

I would order one per taste just to begin, for my own use.
Then, if feasible, I would like to substitute my board sensors (PIC based) with raspberrypi (probably B version) at work. That means another A and B model for experiments at work.
Total: 2 model A's + 2 model B's.

Would go for at least one 'A' and two 'B'. A 'B' would be a cool Xmas (Boxing day) gift for a good friend of mine.

For the 'A' I would like to see if I could move from a PCIntell/W2k system that is a icecast station to this! Hang a Hard Drive and a Wireless adapter off of the USB connection. My Friend and I have had a multi year project but most decent boards like this make it to expensive to do. But a 'B' would be ideal!!!!

One model B for me with a possible second one later on. All these model B replies makes me wonder if the model A will actually get produced? I believe the first batch is all "B"'s?

I'd probably order 2 or 3 B-models: one for me for all kinds of projects, and the one or two to friends for HTPC uses. Possibly also set up one as a semi-desktop for a friend who is starting to show more than just passing interest in internals of computers.

IMHO model A would be much more useful if it sported more USB ports, then it could be used for more diverse projects even though it lacks LAN. Alas, only 1 USB port is too little for anything I have in mind.

Hmm....  I would order one for each member of my family & specially my sisters which would benefit them greatly on many different aspects!  So that would Sum up 5 & at least another 2 or 3 for me to use for several applications!

If there was not a 1 limit I would order 2 at first.

Then if it can do all the projects I have in mind... 7  or 8 more.

Then once I get them working I am sure my family will talk me into giving them to them so another 5 or 6 there.

So 1 for sure 2 very likely and a solid maybe on 12-14 more.

All model Bs

For what I want to use them for the model A isn't that attractive.

I would order 2 model B.

First one to use as a mediaplayer running with XBMC

The second one to experiment with it.

I am not interested in the Model A in the slightest.  I think the 128MB of RAM limitation is likely more cumbersome than the lack of built in ethernet or more than one USB port.  (Network dongles and USB hubs are cheap.)  I would buy a single B now, and then likely augment it with 4 or 5 friends at a later date.  This would give me the extremely cheap means to practice distributed development and dynamic scaleability.

I've got plans for 3, maybe 4.

On a similar note, will we be able to donate to the foundation by paying more?

5 x B for start... I would guess 50 would be the next buy...

2x B version for my first project (I can change the SD to have different project on it) and 3 other for friends.

After this 5 to 10 B version.

At first I just need one Model B. First 10,000 batch will go quickly.

Later on about 20 more for a Bramble Cluster(using the cool name even if the config is not technically a cluster). Bramble Clusters should be very quiet. I have a project requiring lots of CPU and have to work in the same room as solution.

Thanks for these products and your brilliant educational aims.

I'm going to order 1 Model B and then expect to order at least 1 more later.

Plan to configure one as a Risc OS computer and another for XBMC.

As the software evolves for it with more mainstream apps etc I'll probably end up with more.

Well I'd love more than one Model B.. So 1 from the first round would make me happy..

It doesn't pay to be greedy!

I need two of the latest version. I can't wait, I check this site 3 times a day for updates.

Well, I'd like lots of them. One B for starters though. I have a million uses for one. And because they come in far cheaper than the most lowly uC board available to me it means that it's possible to reach a lot higher in quality and function of my planned ideas.

I'm waiting to order 1 B as soon as I can.
